Paul Leroy Thrasher Sr., 86, passed away tragically and suddenly on March 8, 2017 in a car accident with his wife Claudene Thrasher. He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles Conrad Thrasher and Gertrude Majors Thrasher, and two sisters, Kathryn (Thrasher) Cost and Nelle (Thrasher) Battle. He is survived by his sister, Sue (Thrasher) Lowry; brother, Tom Thrasher; son, Paul Thrasher Jr.; daughter-in-law, Karen Thrasher, and grandsons, Daniel, Jeremy, and Brian Thrasher. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. Paul was affectionately known as Pauly by his wife, Claudene and as Pop, by his son and grandsons. He was a lifelong Alabamian, born in West Blocton on April 8, 1930. After attending West Blocton High School and junior college, Paul joined the navy in 1948, and served during the Korean War on the USS Marsh and the USS Ward. He married Claudene Thrasher on May 1, 1954, and went to work at Hayes Aircraft. He later worked at the FHA before starting his own appraisal business with his wife. He was a devoted Primitive Baptist church member who made the trip to his church every Sunday, no matter the distance. He also became an expert woodworker with his own workshop, where he made everything from pens to computer desks. With his love of learning and true Southern charm, Paul will be greatly missed. A celebration of life for Paul Thrasher will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at New Horizon Memorial Funeral Home with the Rev. Ricky Aycox and Elder Wayne Crocker officiating.
